Description

This is the thin, semi-slabby, pebble climb 20 feet left of Liquid Crystal on the South Ridge (Bedrock) of Bear Canyon, sometimes called part of the Stonehenge area.

To get there, scramble north uphill from the main Bear Canyon trail from the little wooden sign near the toe of the ridge, the last rib of rock on the right as you walk up Bear Canyon.

The climb has four bolts, with a high first bolt. It looks like you could finish straight up (bring gear) and build an anchor, but we just traversed over the double-bolt anchor on the ledge above Liquid Crystal.

Some directional gear or a fat piece of webbing to sling a thread would help with toproping, as a last directional, if you go right to this anchor.

Engage very small pebbles at the second and third bolts - stay on your feet! Old-school 10d, but a great little route.

Location

This is twenty feet left (uphill) from Liquid Crystal, on the same face.

Protection

Four bolts - some gear for directionals if you wish for toproping.
